I arrived here too early for the opening time stated, so went off to see other attractions in the area. Since their advertised Hours were 10am to 4.30pm daily, open 7 days, we made a special trip the following day from Ballina, to see this attraction. It was 11.30am and they were still closed. With us having limited time on... More

We enjoyed lunch at this great location last week. The meal was so yummy - really delicious, fresh local produce. Lots of fresh herbs and mango in the salad. The kids had a ball in the maze and even fed alpacas. Relaxing, friendly ... highly recommended!

Beautiful setting and a fun place for the family. Great value for money, The maze was so beautiful and we had a few laughs competing to finish the maze the quickest. The puzzles were also a great way chill out.

Thanks for the review. I'm happy that you had such a good time. I understand that the cost of things are always a concern and for that reason we try to keep the prices as low as possible. In fact, we have not increased our prices since we opened over 8 years ago!! Unfortunately, to provide such a beautiful and... More

Had lovely morning here with 3children ages 3,6,8. They all loved running around the maze & answered bits of the quiz, there are lots of sheets so everyone has their own set of questions including the adults! There was a Jelly snake reward for doing the quiz. We then fed the alpacas and learnt about them from very friendly staff... More

Alstonville is a very attractive town well located between Ballina and Lismore on the far north coast of NSW, Australia. It is blessed with a rural scenery very reminiscent of the English countryside. A great place for a relaxing stay that is also close to many interesting tourist areas such as Ballina and Byron Bay.

We had a great morning - the kids loved the maze and are asking to come again next holiday. Great value as we went through numerous times with a new quiz each time. They were different levels to cater to our children (aged 5 and 8), and I think they would have stayed all day! Each quiz has a number... More

So glad you enjoyed your time at Amaze 'n' Place. We see so often that it's the family that plays together that has such a wonderful time. Unfortunately, many parents feel a maze is just for kids and don't get to experience and enjoy the fun as well as the wonder of our maze. The unique way we have grown... More

The food was average. The staff didn't seem to care. It feels like a tourist trap and the sign out the front makes turning out of the driveway dangerous... it's a last timer in my books

I took my 3 girls ages 10, 8 and 8. They loved the quiz throughout the maze. After having a snack, we played with the puzzles and games. My 10 y/o was better at finding answers than me in the maze. We finished the day off with another run through with quizzies. Staff were real friendly and helpful.

An interesting place to visit and something different for kids to see. The owners are very friendly and helpful and provide you with options for solving puzzles as you go throughout the maze. We paid $36 for a family visit but when you look at the work put in by the owners it's worthwhile.

Hello Michelle, Glad you enjoyed your time here and nice that you recognised all the work that went into creating the maze and maintaining it. Many don't appreciate the time, money and effort that we've put in. It's very rewarding for us to have people appreciate it and to have a good time here. Thank you for taking the time... More
